It appears that I have arrived in the midst of a mosquito epidemic, far beyond those of normal years. They drive you nearly insane on a daily basis - the whining noise, the abundant itchy bites, the disfiguration of your entire body, the threat of malaria .... need I go on? I´ll never complain about being bitten by bugs in Australia ever again, there´s nothing that compares to this! The most fun part (not) is that we can´t wear insect repellent around the animals in case they lick us and make themselves sick. I kind of pooh-poohed this at first until I saw how my puma Gato responds to things with strong smells. He rubs his face all over the area and drools profusely, and there´s very few things in this world more disgusting than being covered in puma drool, let me tell you.
Other than the whole drooling thing, Gato is an unbeatable cat (the refugio looks down on us beating the animals...). Every day I´m liking him more and more, it will be sad leaving him at the end of the day Saturday (my last working day), but I´ll be in on Sunday to take heaps of photos before
